My buddy was just over and wanted me to roll the best Peggy-O. A particular favorite of mine. We landed on 5.7.77 for a wonderful rendition. I prefer the Betty reels:

If Garcia and Grisman do this song, then you need that too. Right now my brain is a little loose so I can't conjure any shows up of Grateful Dawg.

always loved 5/25/77 however 5/19/74 is great if you are looking for really sad and slow. Jerry did a nice acoustic one 11/24/84.

Ive heard all those May 77 ones, those are always the first ones recommended. I love the ones where hes singing it real sweet, i.e. 10/31/83

We Peggy-O fans have had this discussion before, but what the heck. I urge you to check out my favorite version, 7/13/76. Jerry's guitar solos are so lyrical and evocative, they seem to be an extension of the vocal story. Unfortunately the sound quality of the show available here sucks, but it's enough to remind those of us who were there how it really sounded at the time.

One of the best and longest is 6/17/75 at Winterland! It is a stunner, just beautiful and sounds different from any other version I've heard.

This by far my fav, and easily argued for top five, even # 1, and one last bit of trivia, I was there.

You should really give it a listen, Casper...

I've always been partial to 6/4 and 6/7/77. YMMV

See above; 6-17-75 is a must.

The best Peggy-o is 4/16/78. The crescendo at the end of Jerry's lead is outragous.
